www.aresdefense.com...

u can scroll down and look at the video demonstrations.







its lighter than the M249 SAW currently use by our forces, they should switch to this baby.



comparing to regular m4 carbine and to this one and its only slightly different




Caliber: 5.56 x 45 mm NATO
Action: Gas-actuated, short-stroke tappet
Mass: 3.4 kg (7.5 lbs)
Length: 28"-40" (depends on barrel)
Barrel length: 13"-20", 16" standard
Rate of fire: 625-1000 rpm
Magazine: M27 (M249) linked rounds
STANAG 4172 (M16) magazines
100-round Beta C-Mag

imagine all the soldiers carrying this M4 carbine version pack with either 100 rounds or 200 rounds.


man hope we can get this very soon.

Man, and I thought the M249 was good!!! U could waste ppl with those!!! 1 of my favorites was the 1 handed videos, u can't do that with M249. I also liked that it was smaller, obviously, and didn't have that bad of a recoil. I would probally would have the 640 RPM Version, the 1000 RPM 1 chews through ammo 2 quickly, BUT SWEAT!!!!!!!!! NICE POST!!!

!!! At least there r a hand full of guns out there that make the .22 don't suck.....so badly.

Not likely Russian, it will probably just be a concept for a new machinegun.

But who knows, if the XM-8 will not be chosen, they will probably have a weapon series based on the modified AR-15 weapons.

Their guns like the M16, SR25, M4, etc... Based off of the AR-15 design, or better known as the M16 now, but the AR-15 was 1st, which lead 2 the M16.

The only problem i see with this mod of teh M4 is fact that its not origonally designed as a dedicated MG, its only a modded carbine. the problems you may find are the same as the M4's problem, the barrel of the weapon perhaps wearing out a lot sooner may be a problem, and perhaps more recoil then normal, after all, a M249 stock is a lot diffrent, i know for id still prefer a M249, they seem to be a lot more reliable then a M4, never mind a M4 on steroids.

i believe they already dealt with the problem of the barrel wearing out soon. its changable in anicase and it probably can handle the firing as much as the M249.

I dont know, i see what you mean, but still, i would use the more dedicated FN built M249..i just happen to well..trust FN a bit more..and what about the gas piston? is it diffrent from the normal stoner method? because isnt the gas piston on the M4 due to its length wear out a lot quicker then its older brother the M16?

Smaller is not always better in the case of a SAW weapon, there is a reason why the M249 receiver is a bit larger, it has larger more reinforced bolt, firing pin, sear etc to survive sustained high ROF. without failing.

Just because you modify the receiver to take belt fed ammo and a larger calibur does not mean that you have created the ultimate SAW weapon as the dependability is a HUGE factor. Being capable of laying down one 4 second burst at 600rpm but only to have the bolt spring warp or the sear hammer to distengrate means you are left with a pile of junk.

complete rubbish

Nice way of putting it, i was thinking along the same lines, can he M4 handle firing like a SAW?

I like the different magazine options. Reminds me of the STONER.
Man the STONER was a great weapon.

7.5 lbs as it says in my first post. of course the weigh can change if u use either 100 or 200 rounds or just the 30 round mag. or with the rounds in soft bags its quieter as well as light.
